Fine. Ill get it out there and just say it. Y’all know when I dont write it means Im thinking and Ive been thinking too much. Oh yes I was going to just tell you. Not that Ive been stalling or anything.. for the last few minutes… or 5 months… oh no. Ok fine.
Im going back to Australia.
shiiiiit man, I can hear the word resonate from Ljubljana to Utrecht to Tallinn. What do you think that 3 month road trip was? Its the way I say goodbye and I never do things in a small way. So whats the deal? Ive been consulting on the road for the last year being mr eurotripper but then Customware offered me a really good position in Sydney. As I didnt have a job in Estonia and theres not much teaching to do over winter, Ive been sitting around on my ass a lot, which is no good for anyone. So, in moment of self motivation I got online and booked a ticket back to Australia. Hardest button click EVER.
Some sunshine and a stable job would be nice right now, in fact if I try and make all the justifcations they make no sense, Ill come for a while and see how it goes. I still want to spend my days in Europe, I even still (much to the amazment of every Estonian) want to spend my days in Estonia, just right now the windows of change are taking me back home for an extended stop over, so I should go with the flow.
Im leaving already next Monday, no use in sitting around any longer, I found a good deal in Finnair to send me directly from Tallinn, my favourite airport where I can walk from my house. In sydney Ive arranged some accomodation with those krazy kids in Borrowdale avenue, home among other things of Logic the cat and where the below shown VN commodore is registered in some manner. Its only a temporary place to stay but the good times are assured.
So Ive been packing up the house, some stuff will go into storage here and another box is already winging it way to Sydney courtsey of KLG freight
Yup my roadie is coming home with me. Cost me a pretty penny but this thing came with a stupid pricetag in the first case, so I may as well. The fate of the Volvo is less clear, Ive signed up a use car seller by the name of Meelika, shes going to offload it for a cut of the profits. My plan is to leave it for sale for a reasonable price and if someone take it then great, if not then Volvos which are fully serviced and functioning perfectly dont drop in value too much in 12 months.
So he alludes to a return time! Oh yes. Well I need something to hold on to, I dont intend to stay in Australia forever, its like a sun, crocodile stop over. Ive been away for 3 years, time to get a little grounding and plan the next stage.
Im going to miss a lot but ill leave my musing about such things for another post. Tonight is off to Tartu to see Matic and tomorrow Nils arrives!
Monday, 21:30 is my flight out of Tallinn.
